Post your photos of houses in Igbo villages here. No photos of cities, towns or other urban areas please.

Igbos know what we mean by ''village'' (that place you go to in your state of origin every celebration time)

Those pictures are from Abiriba which is arguably the finest village in Nigeria. I've never been to any other village like that in my life where every house is new and decent.

Re: Post your photos of Igbo village houses here by Abagworo(m): 7:08pm On Jun 24, 2013
On another note, can we classify Abiriba as a village going by the population ans cluster of houses. Maybe we could call it semi-urban. The word "village" which Igbos use to depict their hometowns gives outsiders a wrong impression of the true state of things. Oguta for example is an urban area but many Igbos don't know.

I understand but in Nigeria what non-Igbos view as Igbo village is that poor area with bad houses often depicted in most Nollywood movies. If I tell someone I'll be travelling to my village, what he thinks about is a red, rusty-roofed rural area.

Per Igbo definition, Oguta is a village like other villages where during celebrations people do not travel out from but travel into.

A city will have tarred roads, banks, civil service edifices, huge hospitals, etc. Many (not all) typical Igbo villages lack these things. If you look at the planning of the buildings you will also see that it is everyone to themselves. But Igbo villages have the best buildings and serenity in Nigeria

So it is up to you to inform them with this thread. BTW, you can only find mud houses in small parts of Enugu and Ebonyi

I've actually been to every village in Imo and Anambra States. I've not gone round Abia, Enugu and Ebonyi. Awka-Etiti has many rich people with powerful houses but it is same almost across Imo and Anambra in that populous part of Igboland between Orlu/Ihiala, Nnewi, Ekwulobia and Awka. The difference between those places and Abiriba is that there is a mix up of everything like you find in a city but Abiriba is like a highbrow residential area of a city.


Oguta is a well layed out town. I'll get pictures next time I travel.
